This particular wine has a nice deep ruby color in the glass, and the nose exhibits aromas of leather, blackberry, plum and black cherry, and just the faintest hint of baking spice. The taste is very fruit forward, a very "jammy" sort of Zin, with flavors of ripe plum, cherries, and blackberries, giving way to some fresh herbs, cedar and spice notes midpalate. The tannins are quite well developed, leading to a nice, tight dry finish.

Today I received a delivery of 5 bottles of 2008 Ravenswood Teldeschi Zin from wineshopper.com! So tonight I will enjoy a bottle. The 2008 Ravenswood Teldeschi Zinfandel comes from a great family vineyard run by the Teldeschi family and focusing on growing Zin, along with petite syrah and carignane, which are often blended with this wine. The wine expresses everything I expect in a great Zin, the nose is full of bright fruit, blackberry, cherry, black currant, along with a wonderful hint of cedar and tobacco. The color is an inky, dark purple that suggest the strength of the wine and the smoothness of the tannins. On the palate it's a simply delicious and vibrant explosion of fruit, followed by a long, smooth, dry finish that is so characteristic of the Zins of the Dry Creek Valley in the Sonoma Valley. So wonderful, it would pair well with a grilled steak, seared tuna with a wasabi glaze, or a simple Italian dish, like the sausage with onions and multi-colored peppers I am enjoying it with tonight! Keep in mind also, this is a young wine, and although I treated myself tonight, the remaining bottles will likely be cellared for at least a few years to mature. Overall, this wine is a little expensive, with a usual price around $35, but I got a great deal on this for only $21, and for that price I rate this a solid 4 to 4.5! There are so many other great wines from Ravenswood I'd encourage you to try, from their basic everyday table reds for $8-9 to their exclusive single vineyard bottlings, they are all high quality, great wines that have never disappointed me!

Imagine the soft smooth texture of a fine Merlot. Then combine it with the briary peppery flavors of a Sonoma Zinfandel. That s what you get in this dry complex young wine. It s a classic Zinfandel that despite high alcohol doesn t feel hot. - S.H. Wine Enthusiast.

Freshly picked black fruit envelopes the nose, which is pure and dense, yet delicate. The fruit continues onto the palate, unveiling black cherry, plum and blackberry, a vinous reflection of the deep-vined, dry-farmed, old vine Zinfandel that Joel Pe... Devon Magee.

The Belloni Zinfandel is a terroir-driven wine, beautifully balanced with an attractive earthy complexity. It shows a soft spicy attack of fresh black raspberry and brambly blackberry with distinct earth and tobacco notes, finishing very long.
